Planned Parenthood Head: Keep Politics out of Women's Health
Sex is everywhere, from music to movies to television, yet when it comes to sex education and reproductive health, there is a lack of credible information, says Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood.

"Are pro-life advocates making progress in securing life rights for all humans? You better believe it!...
"Support for abortion continues to plummet. The online campaign sponsored by Planned Parenthood and a slew of other abortion-rights groups,“Trust Women Week,” has garnered fewer than 110,000 “virtual” marchers, where the annual March for Life in DC had about 400,000 marchers—four times as many— physically attend the rally. That alone speaks volumes. Moreover, the media completelydisregarded or distorted reports on the March—again— demonstrating not just bias, but practically media malpractice.
"Polls are showing Americans (especially those under 35) are more pro-life than ever, even though Planned Parenthood so desperately clings to the falsity that America is a “pro-choice” nation.
"Most notably, even though nearly half their billion-dollar revenue is now granted to them via taxpayer dollars, Planned Parenthood saw an $85,000,000 decline in private donations between 2009 and 2010. At this point the abortion giant has been defunded in nine states, including New Hampshire, which stripped funding from Planned Parenthood just last week.
... most convincing of all [is] the fact that top pro-abortion rights forces are acknowledging that those on the side of life are winning the war against the unborn.
In an article published last Saturday [Jan. 21], Casey Martinson, a Planned Parenthood Director of Public Affairs, wrote:
"... I’m sorry to say that the sky is falling on Roe v Wade. It’s been falling incrementally for the past four decades, and it fell further, faster, in 2011 than in any year before. According to the Guttmacher Institute, state legislatures passed 94 new laws restricting abortion in 2012. Not only is that a new record, but it shatters the previous record of 34 new laws passed in 2005 by a lot.
"Furthermore some of the restrictions that have been passed in recent years are actually in violation of the protections afforded by Roe v Wade, designed that way intentionally to seed a Supreme Court challenge to the 1973 decision. For example, Nebraska, Idaho, Oklahoma, and Kansas have all passed laws banning abortion after 20 weeks. Many more have tried. And if you look at who is sitting on the bench of our current Supreme Court, there are only three solidly pro-choice votes – the National Abortion Federation rates Justice Kennedy as “mixed” and Justice Sotomayor as “unknown.” The idea that Roe v Wade could be overturned is not Chicken Little."
Abortion-rights blogger Jill Filipovic writes “2011 was a really terrible year for abortion rights. Really, incredibly terrible.”
Planned Parenthood cried that “2011 was a rough year for choice.”(which we all know means abortion) and said,“It’s no secret 2011 has been a crazy year for us. The attacks on PP have been relentless…”
“It has been a breathtaking year watching abortion rights disappear in the United States,” Rachel Maddow, a pro-abortion rights commentator on MSNBC, said after briefly reporting on the March for Life.
NARAL has the same outlook on the bleak future of abortions rights that Planned Parenthood does, publishing articles headlined “…Report Shows State-Level Attacks on Choice Skyrocketed in 2011; Analysis Shows 2012 Could Be Even Worse…”
The next few years are bleak for abortion. We are the (near) future doctors, lawmakers and congress-members of America, and we are pro-life."
